Blvk H3ro w/ Planet Jam & DJ Treez
Friday, December 1 / 9:00 pm-1:00 am
Blvk H3ro is one of Jamaica’s most exciting young artists, with a fervent following built on soulful solo tracks (“Feet Don’t Fail,” “It Nuh Easy”) and a collaboration with the likes of Skillibeng on “Young Boss” Remix. Rooted in reggae and dancehall, his infectious, genre-bending music draws from a boundless range of musical influences and experiences.
Blvk H3ro makes his loudest statement yet with his 2023 sophomore album – On a Mission – released on Delicious Vinyl Island, the Caribbean music imprint of iconic L.A. label, Delicious Vinyl. The follow up to 2019’s The Immmortal Steppa boasts collaborations with fellow rising stars, Teejay, NationBoss and Iotosh. It also features a fresh batch of influences and sounds from afrobeats to jazz. Leading the hype for the project is “It Nuh Easy,” a track that Andrew Holness, Jamaica’s Prime Minister, recently praised in a speech to the nation.
Blvk H3ro received a Grammy nomination in 2023 for Best Global Performance. He opened for Stephen Marley at a string of amphitheater shows in 2022. He has made a splash at such international reggae festivals as Reggae Jam Festival (Germany) and Reggae Geel Festival (Belgium). He has also appeared at the Oregon Reggae Festival and Reggae on the Mountain. That’s all fine and good, but seeing him in the intimate setting of the Crazy Horse Saloon will be the coolest of all!
Be sure to come early for opening sets from the phenomenal DJ Treez followed by Planet Jam. Their signature dub stylings with gypsy influences are totally captivating and dance-inducing!
